Meeting Another Person At LIR

Hi,

Not sure if this is, the correct place to post my question but there seems to be a lot of knowledge here.

I have a friend whos flight coming in 25 minutes ahead of mine if all goes well and I am trying to determine the best place for her to just stop and wait. I have only been through the new terminal once so the layout is somewhat vague. Where do recommend? If possible somewhere easily identifiable to both of us such as before immigration, after, the baggage claim, etc.

Thank you,

Gary

I agree.

Not sure when you were in the terminal at LIR, but there is a new terminal since last year with jetways and all.

When you exit the plane, you will be "funneled" downstairs to Passport Control (Migracion). Once through there, you will head to the baggage area to reclaim your bags. I would just have her wait for you here. Maybe you could tell her "meet me right by the Duty Free shop." It will be obvious.

Then the two of you will go through customs and be ready for your Costa Rican vacation.

Thanks for the responses. I have been to the new airport terminal but I could not recall if there are multiple baggage claims for different airlines. We are coming in two seperate carriers.

No, the baggage claim is all one area. It's not very big so no problem.
